Port Burwell Provincial Park


Port Burwell Provincial park is known as the “Jewel of Erie’s North Shore”. Aptly so, as it has some of the best viewing opportunities for spring migrations of songbirds and fall migrations of birds of prey, monarch butterflies, blue jays, and dragonflies. The diversity of the landscape in this park provides important habitats for migrating species and other permanent residents as well. There are steep bluffs that shelter stands of oak and maple trees, as well as sands dunes, a beach savanna, and meadows. When you visit the park, make sure to head down to the 2.5km clean, sandy beach. This is the perfect place for a dip in the warm waters of Lake Erie. After cooling off, it is time to explore the environmental and cultural features of the park. The hiking trails will take you past a ravine and woodlot, with interpretive boards explaining local geology, flora and fauna. One of the best times to visit is during the thrilling fall migration of hawks, vultures, and eagles. Port Burwell truly is an undiscovered birder’s paradise and a hidden gem in Ontario's Southwest.
